SRAP Welcomes Julia Groenfeldt as Development Manager! 


SRAP is proud to welcome to the team, Julia Groenfeldt, as development manager!

Julia joins our team with extensive experience in food and agriculture policy and public health initiatives centered on community building, coalition management, and partner engagement.

Prior to SRAP, Julia served as program manager for the Institute for Public Health Innovation, where she managed projects and fundraising for food systems initiatives in Maryland and Virginia.

She spent four years in that role supporting the Prince George’s County Food Equity Council, an independent food policy council that advocates for county-level food and agriculture policies and programs to promote public health, sustainability, and economic development in the local food system.

Julia said:

Joining SRAP as development manager is not just a career move for me, it’s a deeply personal commitment to a cause I am passionate about. I’m thrilled to join an organization that aligns with my values and allows me to merge my professional expertise with my commitment to fostering sustainable, ethical, and more climate-friendly food systems. I couldn’t be more excited to contribute to such a passionate and purpose-driven team.

Julia’s experience includes work on local and state-wide food systems strategies, and served as an appointed member of the Maryland Food Systems Resiliency Council.

She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Global Environmental Studies & Food Systems and Master of Arts in Community Development and Planning from Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts. Julia lives in Boulder, Colorado, where she enjoys trail running, yoga, and all things food including gardening, cooking, fermenting, and eating.
